Bobbin Lace Doily

I almost forgot to post a detailed picture of the hand-made bobbin lace doily that my mother made. Mea culpa.

This is entirely my mother’s design, she made the pattern, the template, everything.

    Gorgeous. Beautiful technique (note how tight all the something-something bars are). What are the dimensions, and do you know what weight thread she used?

    Now that I have watched a few videos of bobbin-lace making, I am sure that Charly’s Mom has more than two hands.

    Your mother is a very talented artist. Please tell her that I think her work is outstanding, both in design and execution.

    Yeah, I think this would actually be octoBRAIN. Wow. Really lovely, imagine having come up with this design!

    Beautiful. I like the mathematical progression of 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 in the design.
    With a mom like that, Charly, it’s no wonder why you’re such a talented Artist/Craftsman.
